Why Taking a Good Picture is so Important

Selling anything on the Internet is a lot of the time down to how good it looks in a photo! 

Yes what the Item is, Where it's from, & How much it Costs Help as well, but a lot of the time a Buyer will make their decision to Buy from seeing just the initial photos of the Item!

So here's a few tips on how to get your Item Potentially sold Quickly & for its Fair Market Value!

Firstly a good clear white background around your Item can do Wonders for its Colour its Style its Interest & its Type!

This can simply be achieved by using a sheet or sheets of white paper on smaller items, a white vinyl or very clean white table cloth on medium size items, & a large very clean white sheet behind larger items or Furniture or you can simply use a light coloured wall but try & take the picture head & side on so you don't see your possible multi coloured carpet, & always make sure there is nothing else showing in the picture!

Next is taking good Angles to really show your Item at its Best! 

Always try & find the best front angle of your item for the main photo, then take a picture of its back, its side, & its base or its ID! Having four different images is always the best!

Finally the important bit is always to take a picture of your Items ID like its Hallmark, or Signature, or County of Origin, or possibly its Type Mark! The best way to do this is find the right angle with your camera & get in as close as you can when you take the picture, but always make sure its in focus as with all your pictures!

You will be surprised but a lot of great photos can be achieved simply by using a smart phone camera, or possibly an I pad, some even have different photo options which can give you even better results, of course if you do have a digital camera where your pictures data can be uploaded to your computer & sent by email even better!
